“Dear Nannie” is a historical drama inspired by the 2013 book “Dear Nannie… yours devotedly, Charlie” by Gail McMillan and Jean Robbins, and adapted for stage by Sally Miller of Attic Productions.
The story follows a young Fincastle couple throughout their lives until his death. They endure happiness and hardships; separation by work and war, the loss of a child, and ultimately, a scandal which separates them forever. Spanning the period directly before, during, and after the Civil War, this play is based on the real lives of Fincastle residents.
This show will be presented at Attic’s D. Geraldine Lawson Performing Arts Center, 7490 Roanoke Road, Fincastle, on April 21-23. Show times are Friday at 7:30 p.m., Saturday at 2:30 and 7:30, and Sunday at 2:30.
